In THE LADY'S CODE by Samantha Saxon, Lady Juliet Pervill has become the talk of the town, having been caught by her current suitor Lord Robert Barksdale in the arms of another man. Juliet was with Lord Harrington against her will, and Lord Harrington was trying to ruin her reputation to take revenge on her father. Now, Juliet's life is ruined, but she is not one to let something like this get in her way. Juliet, ever the unconventional lady, decides to make use of her education, that of a background in calculus of all things, and applies for a job with the Foreign Office. She soon becomes the expert at deciphering code, working for Falcon and finding clues that will help the British win the fight against Napoleon. At her new job, she is now working beside Seamus McCurren, who has a difficult time focusing when he's with Lady Juliet. She drives him nuts, in more ways than one, and the two of them bump heads as they try to decipher the French code. Of course one knows that eventually the two will fall for each other, but it takes a while before either of them realize that there is a mutual attraction between them. It does make things difficult when it appears that Juliet is much better at her job than Seamus is! I loved this third novel by Samantha Saxon. For those who enjoy historical romances featuring strong women in roles traditionally held by men, this is highly recommended. Lots of humor and fun characters abound. Juliet represents the type of woman that is not afraid to break tradition and go against the grain. And it is always satisfying when the hero falls for a woman who does not epitomize the conventional description of a beautiful woman.
